Lexx 3.09 Garden (2/4/2000)
Kai and Stan search for Xev in a moth and luckily find her stranded, dehydrated, under a city spire. They fly down to the Garden, and meet three women who spend their day tending to stamens and other flower parts. In an atmosphere of serenity, Kai decides he will plant himself and decompose. Stan wants to stay and teach the gardeners how to please him. Xev longs for a man, and wants to go. Excitedly, the gardeners recreate the Lyekka plant using a hallucinogenic dream ritual. They court her to eat them, and she obliges. Stanley tells Xev that it was nice knowing her.
That was one of the most boring episodes ever. Stan’s rather juvenile attempts at mating. Xen just wandering around and everyone ignoring the fact that Lexx needs food. (1/5)
Lexx 3.10 Battle (9/4/2000)
The Garden is raided by Prince, and Stan’s love, Lyekka, dies again, with 5 arrows in her back. Xev is kidnapped, and Kai requisitions an attacking balloon. From there, they engage in a battle of wits with Prince and his offsider (who appears as Priest in series 4). After a series of daring moves, both Prince and Priest die. Stan and Kai make it to the Lexx, and begin a search for Xev who is walking through the desert. Prince reincarnates near her, to walk with her, and watch her die in the scorching heat. He’s not part Cluster Lizard, so he dies first. Rated one of the visually spectacular episodes.
This is more exciting. It’s fun with balloons, and defying the laws of physics. (3/5)
